My husband convinced me to put one of my seedlings in the TT planter, even though I knew that it was far too small. That plant lasted about 1 week in the Kansas wind - Typical. So, I ended up buying a plant to replace my seedling. I found a place in the yard for my planter, added some crushed eggshells and topsoil, and here it is!
We also bought some dwarf spruce trees to put in pots on our deck. So far we have only transplanted one, but it looks so cute!
Don't you think? The plan is to (eventually) put twinkle lights on these to give a little ambiance to our backyard. It will also be nice to look out in the winter and see something that makes me smile in the no-grow season.
Finally, while meandering around the backyard, I found some surprises! We had to cut down two trees: A dead tree and live one that were too close to the deck when we bought the house. Mushrooms grow and work to break down the dead root system. Here are the interesting formations they are growing in.
Kind of gross and kind of cool. =)
